CARTERVILLE, Ill. — A sheriff says reality TV actress Tila Tequila complained that audience members threw stones and feces at her during an outdoor music festival in southern Illinois.
Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner told a Carterville TV station it happened early Saturday at the Gathering of the Juggalos. That's a weekend festival based around the band Insane Clown Posse and other groups from Psychopathic Records.
Seiner told WSIL-TV that Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, complained that she was injured when audience members threw rocks at her. Seiner said Nguyen also complained that feces were thrown that struck her in the face.
The sheriff also said one man stabbed another, though not fatally.
Sheriff's Department dispatcher Jimmy Barnard said early Sunday that he had no other details.
